VirtualOffiCenters/OffiCenters Monthly Newsletter 
Featuring Opportunities for Creative Collaboration 

Notes From Lori
January flew by! It's time to welcome February '17. It's official! Our project at Park OffiCenter is now complete which included passing the fire inspection. You should all know that our halls are safer than ever, as the fire rating has now increased
by an additional hour. On to the next projects! Our team is working on a new billing system that you will be seeing in the near future and I am finalizing the plans on a BIG project that will have us opening in the east-metro this summer.

Last month's PowerLunch was standing room only! Thanks to Louise Griffith of One Shining Light, who did a great job. If you missed her presentation, here's a link to our YouTube channel. It looks to me like this short month is packed with activities.  Fall in Love with WIN is always one of our most popular networking parties of the year. Who doesn't love Wine and Chocolate? Make sure to join us for PowerLunch on the 23rd and mark your calendar on the 28th for the New Biz MN: What Every Small Business Should Know networking & reception. Check out all February events HERE. I'm seeing a lot of new faces joining our community and our workspaces have never been more electric. I hope to see you at one of our events this month!
